Well, this is obviouslky not good for a team struggling to hit. Dayan was 7 for his last 14 with three doubles.

This is starting to remind me of '07 when the Sox would call up the likes of Andy Gonzalez, Dewon Day, Jerry Owens, etc.

guys who I had never heard of and didn't expect to do anything at the plate.

Agree. I had posted a while ago that some teams are proactive and sign a veteran or two to a minor league contract. Boston and New York do it. In fact the Red Sox ended up releasing Ryan Sweeney when he refused a minor league contract with them and became a free agent. But the Cubs grabbed him and placed him in AAA. In fact, I think Sweeney would have been a better option than wise.

Chicago White Sox

White Sox recalled outfielder Blake Tekotte from @KnightsBaseball. He will wear uniform No. 18.

Tekotte, 25, had been playing extended spring training games in Glendale, Ariz. and was reinstated from the disabled list yesterday.

Tekotte was acquired by the @whitesox from the @Padres on November 7, 2012 in exchange for pitcher Brandon Kloess.

I haven't been following his progress since the minor league season started (he had a great Spring Training), but this would have been a perfect opportunity to bring up Jared Mitchell and let him play nearly everyday for 2 weeks.

Mitchell was sent down to Birmingham yesterday. He's been awful.

Since you haven't been following here are his stats at Charlotte this year. They are Dunn like. In fact, even prior to this year his progress has been underwhelming.

I saw on Twitter where Keith Law mentioned that a scout had Mitchell on a list for recommendations of release.

He'll be 25 at the end of the season.

Maybe they give him one more year after this as a last ditch effort to become a 4th outfielder type, but he's really not a factor of becoming an everyday player anymore.

How do I love a team I hate so much?
